Take a rare and exciting look at the life of dinosaurs through their eggs, nests, and embryos in the Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies exhibit from Jan. 23, – May 1, at the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks’ Museum of Natural Science. This hands-on exhibition includes more than 50 authentic dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the globe. “A captivating experience for all ages, Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies, invites visitors to touch a real dinosaur bone, dig for eggs, experience handson exploration stations, and view animated video presentations featuring well-known dinosaur experts,” explains Charles Knight, museum director. Each science-rich section is enhanced with exciting life-like models of embryos and hatchlings, colorful illustrations of dinosaur family life, and stunning photographs of some of the world’s most renowned dinosaur hunters and their discoveries. Although dinosaur eggs were first identified in the 1920’s, their scientific significance was not fully appreciated until the end of the 20th century. Today, dinosaur eggs are recognized for their enormous scientific value and for offering fascinating details and fresh insights into the behavior, growth, and history of dinosaurs.
